Professors seek to go beyond the classroom to help you understand your calling and to prepare you for it. Some faculty are full-time and others are part time, bringing their experience from the field into the DCC classroom.

Leadership Distinctive

DCC educates and mentors people to be leaders, including concentrations in leadership and mentors who lead in their field.

We focus on leadership development. We want our students to graduate with a humble servant’s heart ready to assume leadership roles in their church, community, and career. All students are provided opportunities to engage with faculty and professionals who challenge them to explore their unique gifts so they can realize their full potential. Courses such as Cultural Competency, practicums, and internships give students real-world experience with feedback on how they can be effective leaders.

Mentorship & Networking

Students are mentored by peers and professionals as well as learning to be mentors.

This unique program allows students to receive and provide mentorship – both internally and externally – every year at Dallas Christian. Community leaders pour into students’ lives, resulting in personal and professional development.

Hello & Welcome

Welcome to the Bible & Theology Department at DCC. Regardless of what you come to study at DCC, you will also be studying the Bible. Most programs include a second major in Bible, and the degree completion programs include a minor in Bible.

Are you concerned that you are a novice to the Bible? Our team of professors know and love God’s word and want to help you know it and love it as well. You will start with classes that give you an overview of the Bible. You will build from there to learn how to study the Bible for yourself, with help from Logos® Bible Study software.

Your study of the Bible will help you answer questions like, “Who am I?” and will help you know what God has called you to be and to do.

I look forward to meeting you.

Degree Completion

Degree completion is a special degree category that allows you to finish a bachelor’s degree with a Bible minor rather than a Bible major. In terms of credit-hours, that means 18 hours vs. 30 hours—saving you about a semester as well as the cost of those 12 extra hours. Faster and less expensive. If you qualify and need to get done as quickly as possible, degree completion is your best plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is a Bible Major or Minor Required?

A Bible major or minor is one of the best possible ways to prepare a person for the workplace and the current world. Surveys indicate that one of the key skills employers look for in employees is critical thinking. Studying the Bible builds critical thinking skills and encourages clear articulation of thought through writing—another skill for which employers are looking. Studying Scripture is also foundational to answering questions about who you are and what you were created to do. Answering questions like that help students establish their worldview. To be able to lead within today’s world, current and future leaders must know important truths such as “God created us in His image” and how to apply those truths as the world continues to change. DCC graduates are prepared to lead.
